Good Morning Marine!
Word for the Day:
(1Samuel 6 & 7)
“God’s Message of Repentance”
Text: 1Samuel 7:3
“Then Samuel spoke to all the house of Israel, saying, “If you return to the LORD with all your hearts, then put away the foreign gods and the Ashtoreths from among you, and prepare your hearts for the LORD, and serve Him only; and He will deliver you from the hand of the Philistines.”
“God’s Message of Repentance,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
This Message is an Unchanging Message that is preached by Holy Spirit to every human being, Saint or Sinner;
Return to the Lord with All Your Heart -
Put Away All gods among you -
Prepare Your Heart for the Lord Only -
And Serve Him ONLY!
The Message Begins With Repentance, returning to God With All Your Heart.
When we Truly Repent and Return to God - we will put away all other gods among us, and we will Prepare our Hearts for the Lord Only, and we wIll Serve Him Only! Ooooh Rah!
True Repentance Must Be Inward (with ALL our Heart) and Outward (put away ALL idols among you).
Inward repentance is the most important, that’s why it’s the first action the sinner must execute! “I have sinned against the Lord,” (v.6).
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”(1John 1:9). Inward repentance is hidden, no one but God can see it. So the inward repentance is “demonstrated” by the outward repentance of putting away all idols of worship; the stuff we think is better than God.
Yes people can’t see the repentance of our heart but they can clearly see the “demonstration” of our outward repentance by the Life You and I Live every day.
We are God’s Living Letter that people read every day!
“You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men;
clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.”(2Corin.3:2-3)
Serving God Only is the “Bonus” of Repentance! You and I Get the Privilege of Serving Yahweh ONLY! We don’t want to serve anyone else because No Person or Thing is better than Yahweh!
We Serve God Because We Love Him, He has given Life to You and I! Ooooh Rah!
Oh I got to wrap this up with the Night Song:
“I Will serve Thee
Because I Love Thee
You have given Life to me.
I was broken until You found me
You have given life to me.
Heartaches, broken pieces,
Ruined lives, are why You died on Calvary
Your touch was what I longed for
You have given life to me.”
Oh how I love God’s Message of Repentance; because it gives me a chance to become complete in Jesus and continue my Life of Adventure Walking With Jesus! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
